Circolo Sportivo
2500 Park Ave.
Bridgeport, CT

Our presenter will be our very own Mike Donofrio who will talk to us on the Italian Renaissance. Mike is a colorful, knowledgeable personality which promises to make for an interesting evening. This event is free and open to the public. Do invite family, friends and neighbors. Refreshments will be served.


June 14, 2019

Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course
Park Avenue, Bridgeport CT

We serve a light dinner - antipasto, pasta, entree, dessert and coffee. Wine will also be served. Hard drinks will be in addition to the cost of admission which is $40.00 per person. We will have musical entertainment featuring Aaron Caruso and at least one soprano.

On two occasions we had 200 people in attendance at Neapolitan Night. Last year we had 105 people. Our venue holds about 120. I bring this to your attention because if we should once again attract 200 people, we cannot accommodate that number so first come first served must apply. So do not delay in sending Len your check for $40 to BACIO, 19 Old Sport Hill Rd, Easton, CT 06612. Len thanks you for your cooperation.

TRIP to Castelfranco in Miscano, Italy

Valerie D'Elia is putting together a trip to Castelfranco in Miscano, Italy, from August 8th to August 18th, 2019. A huge highlight of the trip is a concert by Antonio Pappano who is a Bridgeporter (his Mom still lives on Madison Ave., Bpt). He is London's Royal Opera Music Director as well as Music Director of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia since 1 October 2005;
